Your typical 34-story condo tower might include a couple hundred units or more, but when the building contains only full-floor condos, you get exactly 34 units. With robust early sales and an average list price of about $3 million, this Solomon Cordwell Buenz-designed building at 50 E. Chestnut St. is reinforcing a sense of the imperviousness of the luxury condo market to recent recessionary trends. Unlike most buildings around town, the resale market at 50 E. Delaware seems positively bullish. There are currently four full-floor condos listed on the MLS (on the 8th, 11th, 30th, and 33rd floors), and all of them are listed higher than the previous sale prices, the most peculiar of which is a 33rd-floor unit that has been 'under contract' since 2009 for $3.9 million — more than $1 million more than it sold for in 2008. In addition to the units listed on the MLS, the building's developer, Jameson, has a couple more listings in its website.
